Apailana was a human female monarch who served as the Queen of Naboo during the final days of the Clone Wars and the early days of the Galactic Empire.[3] She was one of the youngest rulers to be elected by the Naboo, succeeding Neeyutnee at the age of twelve.[2]

Shortly after the Clone Wars, the young queen attended the funeral of Senator Padmé Amidala,[3] who had supported Apailana's election as the new monarch. However, she did not believe the official story of Amidala's demise, which claimed that rogue Jedi had assassinated the senator.[2]

Personality and traitsEdit

Apailana measured 1.57 meters and had brown eyes and light skin.[2] During Amidala's funeral, she wore a headdress and put on makeup and like other queens, a scar of remembrance.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Apailana was portrayed by the Oscar-nominated New Zealander actress Keisha Castle-Hughes.[3] Castle-Hughes spent seven hours in make-up for her role in Episode III and filmed her scene in only one day.[4]
